My computer needed to restart for a McAfee update and ever since then my screen resolution is all messed up. I tried to fix it with the control panel, display option but that didn't do the trick. On my desktop I have to scroll up if I want to see all my icons and scroll down if I want to see the task bar. I have to scroll over if I want to see the end of the task bar. How do I fix this??
Jessica, try doing a system restore to a time before the update. When your McAfee expires, I would recommend you use Microsoft Security Essentials instead. It's free and works pretty well. You can always remove McAfee and use it now if you choose.
I did do a system restore to before the update and still a giant desktop! I am not using IE at all. This isn't just an IE browser issue! My whole desktop is extra large. I have to move the mouse up and down to see all my icons on the desktop.Same with my task bar.. I have to move the mouse left and right if I want to see the whole thing.
It seems your video driver is corrupt, why, I don't know. Go into device manager and see if you have any yellow caution marks behind any hardware. If you need to find the drivers, post the make and model # of your machine.
